"Fleurs et Papillons pour Maman"

Hi Peeps, hope all is well...When I saw this challenge on the Frosted designs blog yesterday, I just knew I had to play. Even though I love a wide variety of flowers, tulips are my favorite. I have  hundreds of them in my gardens. I love that they are among one of the first flowers that come out after a harsh 4 months of winter here; I love the varied shapes and colors of the petals,  the ruffles on the parrot ones, the shape of the leaves and I love that you have to wait till they are completely opened to peak inside and see what magical design is in there!
And I adore the color combo they came up with; isn't this scrumptious?

I had a few ideas last night on what to use, but when I went through my fabric today and found this tulip, even leaning the same way, out came the scissors!! This card did not photograph well; please believe me when I say it is much nicer in person !!!

After putting down a few layers for the base, I found this butterfly border; I cut the gems out of a larger gem.
I cut out another leaf put this flower on dimentionals; added a brad among my bottom swirls.
 Aren't these letters sweet ?

I like the shape of this brad; added glossy accents to my tag butterfly.

  I really enjoy the challenge of mixing up products from lots of different companies. And this is my inside.

Have a great week-end all !!! My prayers go out to all the people affected by the earthquake...
